On 6 October 2014, EMODnet will organize a pre-event at the EurOCEAN 2014 Conference in Rome (7-9 October) from 14:00 to 18:00: EMODnet – Connecting people with data.
The workshop will introduce EMODnet and the data services it provides to a wider audience emphasizing the need for close collaboration between the various actors and related data initiates as well as between science and industry for new technologies and services in support of Blue Growth. It will consider how EMODnet fits in the wider marine data landscape in Europe and showcase new sea-basin level approaches to evaluate marine data availability and observation capacity from a use-perspective. To conclude, the participants will consider current bottlenecks and look ahead at requirements to guide future development of this long term marine data initiative into a fully operational, efficient and user friendly service addressing the needs of the marine science, policy and industry communities.
